Everything an amplifier needs

The C 388 includes a built-in DAC, Phono-stage, Bluetooth (AptX), Wi-Fi and Network Streaming so you can spin your records, listen to your TV, access internet radio or connect to any network with a UPnP Client. Also, you can utilise the NAD control app so your smartphone or tablet can control functions of your C388. The bluetooth can also be used to listen to other sources connected like wireless headphones. 

New Advanced Hybrid Digital™ Amplification

Gone are the old-fashioned power-hungry linear power supplies and Class AB output stages, these designs waste nearly half of the energy consumed producing heat rather than sound. Instead, NAD have developed new circuits based on switch mode power supplies and a customised version of the high-end Hypex UcD output stage. NAD’s advanced work in this area has created some of the best sounding and performing amplifiers regardless of basic design principle. These new designs are very linear over a wide bandwidth, ultra transparent with extremely low noise and distortion, and have plenty of power and performance that is consistent into all speaker loads.

Forward Thinking

The C-368 features NAD’s forward thinking Modular Design Construction (MDC), an exclusive feature of NAD products. This feature allows you to customise your NAD amplifier with additional capabilities and features, now or in the future. See below for the available MDC modules for the NAD C-368.
